Almond & Cream Cheese-Stuffed Olives
Author: Aimee
Prep time: 4 mins
Total time: 4 mins
Here's a fun appetizer that can be assembled with ingredients most of us have on hand over the holidays: olives, almonds and cream cheese. The recipe comes from one of my new favorite cookbooks Perfect One-Dish Dinners by Pam Anderson. Watch out though, the perfect combination of brininess, creaminess, and crunchiness makes these stuffed olives highly addicting!
  • 1 jar large green olives
  • 24 roasted salted almonds
  • 3 oz cream cheese
  1. Remove pimento (or in my case, a nut) from each olive and trim the bottoms so that they stand upright.
  2. Scrape an almond tip over cream cheese to pick up 1/4 teaspoon or so.
  3. Stuff almond into olive and set onto a serving tray. Repeat with remaining olives.
Makes approximately 24, minus the ones you eat during prep. Do ahead: Covered and refrigerated, these hors d'oeuvres can be made several hours in advance.
